Thank God for the invention of Internet! I was streaming Martha Stewart's previous show and was fortunate enough to stumble upon the episode where Matt Lewis was doing a demo for a Mississippi Mud Pie from his and Renato Poliafito new book entitled Baked Explorations. I'm on pins and needles waiting for this to be available here. I had their Baked book before the tragic flood, I still haven't got the change to replace that copy. I've been meaning to do that just waiting for the right timing meaning, the four letter word that makes my retail heart pitter patter, "SALE" of course! Why pay for something in full price when I can get it during sale? Though I have to be very patient with all the waiting. Sometimes I cannot help myself I buy at full price when I really really want the book.
Back to the topic on hand, the Mississippi Mud Pie aka Muddy Mississippi Cake. Unlike Martha who haven't tried Mississippi Pies before, I love them, I mean, what's not to love, the version,I ate had the crisp chocolate cookie crust then a layer of chocolate ice cream and a hefty blanket of whipped cream. This version though is more complicated than the ice cream type Mississippi Pie but was definitely worth all the effort and the dirty dishes.
You can print out the recipe from here.
